Glue – Holding The Horizon Hostage Lyrics

God gave you a face that could crush a tough devotion

You left my hands no matter how hard i was holding

What kind of punishment do i expect for being distant

I don’t expect a second chance and I’m man enough to admit it

The steps i never learned, were lost in my fathers words

The chances i never gave you, were lost in my mothers journal

I use invisible ink because secrets are hard to keep

And these seven days weeks have a habit of making you weak

Forget give everything again

The same traps ripped my lifeline in unforgiving shreds

So look around you and pick up any pieces you can find

But i can’t promise the big picture will be finally be right

I have memories, my roadblock, stopping a new chapter from birth

The sunny days don’t seem to outweigh the way the night hurts

Faster than i watched myself become a ghost

The mirror told me lies until my ear drums burst

So i lit the short fuse, the explosion killed us all

Now i sit around and wait for the season to fall

So involved in love we lost our shot, our only chance

What’s your poison baby-doll, pity or romance?

I want this to stop, i reached out, you looked away

Get out of my guilt, you’re not welcome to stay

I’m acting like we need to have one last conversation

Or it’s never gonna end, gotta end the fascination

I decided When the dizziness subsides in the endless car ride

Of scenery and blurry skies, i would escape that sky

Chasing us around the country, outsmarting the moon

I need to get home, i need to go home soon

Before the stairs and front door change places

Me chasing my tail won’t seem so mundane and tasteless

The way you made life race, the passion in your face

Had 50 years of trying to find a perfect pace

Hiding under the constant depression of your lows and highs

I had reason, but even more i had you by my side

When midnight called us away from reading and dreams

When the blanket fell off your beautiful freezing feet

My eyes never heavy, ready for the wide awake

Smash into a million pieces, when the last straw would break

The future is coming, it’s the past in a fancy dress

Upset that I’m not listening or in my sunday best

You want baby talk, but orphans like me are tongue tied

30 miles from new york and you can still see the lights

Hold the horizon hostage, shoot the breeze for moving

Look what it cost us, look what we’re doing…..

I want this to stop, i reached out, you looked away

Get out of my guilt, you’re not welcome to stay

I’m acting like we need one last conversation

Or it’s never gonna end, gotta end the fascination

All my friends are getting divorced, i was in the weddings

Maybe my bad luck has a habit of spreading

It’s a vulnerable place, far from inner space

With more love than the handles surrounding your waist

I’m not going to pretend to know how you handle me

But my secret victories are your public tragedies

I’ve teaching myself how to play the drums

So i can beat the hell out of something other than my tongue

A new outlet, letting myself get out

From all traps you set up in the underground

At this level we can finally see eye to eye

But that’s because we both know how to lie

Down and let our demons finally find rest

By whispering, god is the only answer to death

Tough calls and night-sweats, panic driven last steps

Touching on sensitive subjects and regret

These kind of songs will haunt you, but i really don’t mind

Looking back on the drama makes today feel fine

Drink up, three cheers for all the cheap shots

The ones you drink and the ones you caught

Behind your back with your ears wide open

This is me, honest, run down, coping…..

I’m sorry for bringing it up, here’s some dirt and a shovel

Bury this next to the last 2 years and all of your trouble
